Blackcat Football Camp

The enrollment at this week’s BCISD football camp kept growing, with 60 kids showing up for the start of the camp Monday, July 31, and double that count, at 120, on Tuesday, said Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Lupe Florez. His campers at BCHS practice field ranged from kindergarten to ninth grade - including two girls. Florez said the older campers understand the need to attend. Indeed, for the older campers, Florez’ coaches began working “on drills we do every day” during football season. They watch films and coaches teach them actual play calling. As for the young campers, Florez said, “the little kids are having fun and we teach some skills. We want them to fall in love with being a Blackcat.” Noting the females in attendance, the coach said, “they are more than welcome to be part of this program. The values we teach are the values we teach and everyone can learn from it.” The Blackcats - picked to be among the top finishers in District 12-4A this year - will begin two-a-days next Monday, Aug. 7. Already 70 Blackcats are showing up on the BCHS fields and running their own practice before the coaches take over next week, Florez noted.
Meet the football coaches night will be at the BCHS cafeteria at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, and equipment will be handed out Friday.

Front row, from left: Lupe Florez, Athletic Director, Head Football Coach; Kimberly Sanders, McDonald’s department manager; No. 1 Carlos Lara; and No. 34 Heart Gaskin.

 

   The Blackcats are teaming up with McDonald’s in Bay City to raise money for communications equipment for coaches.
   The goal is to raise $36,000 for headsets to allow coaches on the sideline to talk with coaches in the press box.
   The Blackcat coaches were not able to communicate with each other during Bay City’s 39-19 playoff loss to Bridge City at Galena Park Stadium Nov. 18.
   “It broke my heart,” said McDonald’s owner Daniel Carreon last week.
   It was Carreon who guided the Black Cat coaches in raising funds for the headsets.
   He was at his Bay City restaurant on the day when Blackcat quarterback coach Josh Ervin came in to get McDonald’s on board for a Blackcat card coupon.
   Instead, Carreon said he asked Ervin, “What is your dream goal? What do you really need?”
   Ervin said he then conferred with the coaching staff – and got Superintendent Dr. Marshall Scott’s approval - and returned to Carreon.

"Trustees OK baseball/softball project plans" by: Jessica Shepard

   Bay City ISD trustees approved construction documents for the high school baseball/softball field project during Monday night’s regular meeting.
   Mike Weaver, secretary/treasurer for Weaver & Jacobs Construction Company, made a brief presentation to the board about the progress of the field project.
   “The junior high is on schedule for mid-November and the baseball/softball project will be complete by the time baseball starts in February,” said Weaver.
   “So, this is just a formality; a line in the sand to say that the architects are done and it’s in our court now,” he added.
   The bond project calls for a new baseball field and renovations for the adjacent softball field.
   “There’s nothing anywhere that says you have to accrue things at certain points along the way during projects (to take to the board),” he said during his presentation to trustees.
